Writing Binder Bundle



This year I combined 2 products that I have used for a few years.

Dollar Tree had 1" binders with the plastic cover... yippee!



Now each student has their own writing portfolio including:
structured writing with information and creative writing prompts and graphic organizers
and poetry including the 6 types of poetry below.


Each month there are many activities for the kids to create and complete.
They provide ideas and structure.




I have also provided lined paper for the kids to use with their own ideas.




Write On in pictured in one of the photos above.  They are 72 various topic cards for the kids to use during their writing time.  They help them focus of the experience of writing without the worry of spelling.
